Pat Symonds has revealed he still wants to return to Formula One.

Alongside Flavio Briatore, the Briton was the other crashgate conspirator and banned from having another "operational role" until 2013.

But the long-time Renault engineering director's company Neutrino Dynamics was engaged for F1 consultancy work last year, and he wrote a technical column in a specialist magazine.

And Symonds said at the Autosport International show in Birmingham that he hopes to expand his return to F1 in the near future.

"There are still lots of things I want to do," he said. "I still have a love of F1 because of the engineering. I absolutely have a passion for racing -- you cannot keep me away."
